Experts from the structural timber sector will come together on 6 November 2019 in London to address timber’s use in the construction industry as a versatile and natural material undergoing a contemporary design resurgence.
The seminar will also provide a valuable networking opportunity, where guests will be able to gain insights from industry leaders who are shaping the future of the construction industry.
The groundswell of interest in engineered timber is driven by both technological advances and concern for the environment and sustainable construction practices.
It is undergoing a ‘revival’, where it is used in widespread applications delivering high-quality architecture to the realisation of cutting-edge structural engineering.
Over the last decade structural timber has entered a new dimension with the development of new building systems and design strategies.
Timber Talks is taking place at the Building Centre; it is open to architects, engineers, clients, contractors, local authorities, housebuilders and developers.
It will feature high-calibre speakers discussing the aesthetic, commercial and technical possibilities of structural timber, through case studies and award-winning projects.
